Dorm Information

Housing & Roommates

Campers will reside in the Clara Residence Hall dorms on campus. Campers stay two per room and are assigned by age or roommate request. If you have a roommate request, and have not already given it to us, please do so as soon as possible. Roommate requests are not guaranteed, if you don't have a roommate request, you will be placed in a room with someone near your age. It will be a great opportunity to meet someone new!

Bathrooms: Shared
Linens: Not provided
Air-conditioning: Yes
Pool: Yes
Room Key Deposit: $50 check
Suggested Spending Money: $40

Swimming

There will be optional swim time throughout the week for campers. Please pack accordingly (bathing suit and pool towel).

Supervision

The staff live in the dormitories with the campers and participate in evening activities (such as movies, games and pizza parties). Drugs, alcohol and tobacco are strictly prohibited, and constitute, along with general misconduct, grounds for dismissal from camp without a refund.

 

Camper Evaluation

Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. In addition, campers will be evaluated and then split up into smaller groups according to age and ability. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure immediately following.

Transportation

Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you are flying to or from camp, we recommend using an airport shuttle service. Please schedule flights as close as you can to the check-in times on the first day and check-out times on the last day.

Registration Packet

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. 

Scholarships

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

*Please note, this information is subject to change.

    Everyone gets rewarded for their hard work.

    July 25, 2016: I really enjoyed this camp because the coaches and the players/campers made it a great experience. My most memorable experience was when i won MVT at the award ceremony because it meant a lot to me. My favorite part of camp was the award ceremony. The coaches made sure that all of the campers were rewarded for their hard work. I would recommend this camp to players who are serious about progressing their basketball skills and IQ.

    Focuses on fudnamentals, skills, and scrimmages.

    July 25, 2016: Out of two years attending this camp, everything always goes very smoothly and is well organized. My most memorable experience is being able to connect with friends from the previous camp year. The intensity is great and focuses on fundamentals, skills training, and practices/scrimmages. Very good training and helps to build one's confidence.

    All of the girls became really good friends.

    July 26, 2016: All of the girls became really good friends so it was a lot of fun in that aspect. I also learned a lot and feel like I became a better player. My favorite part was the 5-on-5 games we played because it was like playing a game, but you kept switching opponents so there was a new challenge each time. I think that the camp was well planned and well executed.

    My son came home with academic, character and basketball skill goals.

    My son came home with academic, character and basketball skill goals. He says it was worth the time and money invested. My son expressed the need to continue the work and practice what he has learned by attending the camp - This is something that I have trying to encourage him to do since he started the sport. Therefore from a mother’s perspective his game has already improved.

    Camp taught me new skills and made me a better player

    The gym was great and the coaches made it fun to be there. I learned more about basketball and new skills like jump stops, pass fakes, and pump fakes. I still use the shooting drills that we practiced. Once I left camp I felt like a better player.
